Felder Talks About Rocket Offer

It's been quite a week for Brendon Felder. Last weekend he was named the MVP of the Scout.com Baltimore Combine, and within a few days he received his first three scholarship offers from Buffalo, Pittsburgh, and Toledo. Rocket Digest recently caught up with Felder to get the scoop on his offer from Toledo.

It's been quite a week for Brendon Felder. Last weekend he was named the MVP of the Scout.com Baltimore Combine, and within a few days he received his first three scholarship offers. "Pitt, Buffalo, and Toledo," Brendon told Rocket Digest when talking about those three offers he picked up. He's also hearing from Boston College, Penn State, Maryland, Nebraska, Minnesota, Purdue, and Oregon.

Toledo's Inside receivers coach Jason Candle is recruiting Felder for the Rockets, but instead of being recruiting as a wide receiver, Toledo wants Felder as a cornerback.

So what does Felder think of the Toledo offer?

"I was real happy to hear they offered me," said Brendon. He added, "Toledo is a rising program." While Brendon has not visited Toledo's campus yet, he does plan to soon. He also said that he will probably go to one of Toledo's camps this summer.

Without seeing Toledo's campus yet, it's hard for Brendon to compare it to schools he has already been to. Right now though, two schools seem to stand out the most to Brendon because he has visited them. "Not really favorites, but probably most impressed with Boston College and Pitt, only because I've been there the most," said Felder. He added, "Boston College I love because that's where I grew up and I know people on the team and the coaches are great."

Despite the impressions of Boston College and Pittsburgh, Toledo is very well in the mix for Brendon's services. In fact, he is not in a hurry to make a commitment. "I probably would want to wait till after my senior season just to make sure I'm making the right choice," said Felder. "This is all somewhat new to me. I need to pray to God and sit down with my dad and coaches."

The 5-10, 162 pound Felder runs a 4.37 forty and holds a 3.0 GPA in the classroom. His 4.37 forty was clocked last weekend at the Baltimore combine. He had over 1000 all-purpose yards and 14 touchdowns last season as a junior at Gateway SHS in Monroeville, PA. Both Toledo and Pittsburgh are recruiting Brendon to play cornerback.
